Paige Hubl left her mark as a player at Lincoln Southeast. Now she'll aim to do the same as a coach.
The former Knight standout was named Southeast's head volleyball coach Wednesday, the school announced.
Hubl was a four-year starting libero for coach Lindsay Coleman from 2005-08, and finished among the school's all-time leaders in both aces and digs. Hubl, who also was a standout in basketball and soccer, was named a Super-State second-teamer as a senior before playing for John Cook at Nebraska.
"I am very excited for the opportunity and consider it an honor to coach at Lincoln Southeast," Hubl said in a statement. "I'm joining a program that has such a strong academic and athletic tradition. I look forward to continuing the legacy of the LSE volleyball program."
Hubl takes over for Theresa Naumann, who stepped down after one season to take a position at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota.
Southeast also announced the hiring of Ryan Bauer as head wrestling coach.
Bauer was a state qualifier for Kearney before wrestling in college at Nebraska-Kearney. He was part of two Division II national championship teams in 2012 and 2013, and two national runner-up squads in 2014 and 2015.
After graduation, Bauer was hired as head wrestling coach at Sandy Creek (South Central), where he also served as an assistant football coach at the varsity level.
"I am excited to join the Lincoln Southeast family," Bauer said in a statement. "The Knight wrestling team is coming off of a successful season where they qualified 10 wrestlers and qualified for the state dual meet. I am excited to build off of these recent successes and to see this program catapult to being a consistent power in Class A wrestling, in the state of Nebraska."
Bauer takes over for Zach Schnell, who will be coaching at Lincoln Northeast.
Southeast also is looking to fill its open girls basketball position after Kara Graham stepped down in May to become the Knights' assistant director of athletics and activities.
